I need to put a zipper in the coat I am making but do not know how when the pattern calls for buttons. I am using gore-tex fabric and the coat will be lined. I am not sure of the measurements to add/subtract. I want to use Kwik-Sew 2925 picture B. I found Kwik-Sew 3622 A that has a zipper but no hood. Any suggestions would be very welcome.

The pattern with the buttons should show a center front line; that will be your center front seam line for the zipper. Add to this line 5/8" (on the left side of the line, because you are extending it) This will be the seam allowance for the zipper.

Thank you very much. I will add the 5/8 inch.
